1. Total number of books I've owned: How can someone possibly know that? Silly question. I can't even answer how many I own right now. You're welcome to browse what I've gotten around to cataloging here if you'd like.
2. Last book I bought: Um. I usually buy a bunch at a time. I think the most recent were China Awakes, The Devil in the White City, Common Sense, The Iliad, Amusing Ourselves to Death, Farenheit 451, The Professor and the Madman, The Aeneid, and a batch of stuff by Zecharia Stitchen.
3. Last book I read: I'm working on Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell and Moving Beyond Words/Age, Rage, Sex, Power, Money, Muscles at the moment.
4. Five books that mean a lot to me: That mean a lot to me? See, that's the question that kept me from doing this meme all the months ago that I was tagged with it. Since it stymies me, I'm gonna list 5 books that I really like instead. Parable of the Sower, Songmaster, Memory, Pomosexuals and The Call of the Wild.
5. I'm supposed to tag 5 people here, but I'm not gonna. If you'd like to do the meme, consider yourself tagged. :)
